"Javux," "Linva"...What else should the "Java Desktop System" maybe have been called?

Will Linux on the desktop be the universally accepted solution of tomorrow?

Two LinuxWorld editors have recently argued either side of the issue, with James Turner saying - with a slew of specific reasons - that Linux is "nowhere near ready for the desktop" and Mark R. Hinkle stopping short of any claims of universal appeal but saying nonetheless that "Linux is a solution that can address the needs of a large portion of desktop users."

The odd thing is this: neither editor mentions the Linux-based 'Java' Desktop System, so maybe Sun has made a basic branding error there?

What about 'Javalin'? ...or is that the wrong spelling for spear?

What about JLinux? It sounds much better.
